Solar for Your Farm

The amount of energy from the sun that reaches Earth each day is massive. The Earth’s reserves of oil, coal, and natural gas are roughly equal to only twenty days of sunshine. Solar power offers true efficiency, as most areas of the United States receive enough sunshine to warrant solar power as a practical method of powering an agricultural operation. Developing a solar farm on agricultural land will allow farmers to save money, increase self-reliance, and reduce pollution.

  • Solar energy can also drastically reduce a farm’s electricity bills, heating bills, and other overhead expenses. Solar heat collectors have proved effective to dry crops and warm homes, livestock buildings, and greenhouses.
  • Solar water heaters provide hot water for pen cleaning, dairy operations, and homes. A solar farm’s electric panels, also known as photovoltaics, can power farming operations, remote lights, electrical fences, and water pumps.
  • Buildings and barns can also be renovated to absorb and capture natural daylight. Solar power has quickly become a much less expensive method for powering a farming operation than extending power lines.

Annual Savings

Solar power isn’t just for residential homes or commercial buildings. By powering buildings and barns with solar power, your farming operation will require less energy, becoming more economical, reliable, and eco-friendly.

Reliable Energy

By relying on the massive amounts of energy that the sun sends to Earth, your farm can quickly become a self reliant operation. A fully functional solar agricultural operation can be achieved in a few years time with a solar farm.

Eco Friendly

Fossil fuels are used to generate 68% of the electricity we consume. These methods are outdated and awful for the environment. With a small solar farm, you’ll be able to utilize an infinite, renewable energy source to power all of your electrical amenities.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are Solar Farms on Agricultural Land Expensive?

The price of a solar farm is entirely based on the number of panels that you plan to implement. However, any of the upfront costs to create your own solar farm are offset by the savings that will come from the panels. Many farmers that use solar power for agriculture report making their money back in 10 years or less, meaning that they’ll have decades of savings afterwards.

How Do Solar Farms Work?

Similar to the residential solar panels that can be mounted on your roof, solar farms are angled to get as many hours of sunlight each day. Sunlight is converted into electricity which can be used to power your electrical utility vehicles, constant lighting, barn heating, and more. Traditionally, solar farms will take advantage of a great number of panels, but they can be as small as 2 panels if that’s all you need.

Are Solar Farms Worth It?

When you install solar panels on farms and agricultural land, after the initial investment, you’ll be able to reduce your energy costs for decades to come. When first installing your panels, there are several financial incentives to take advantage of, such as tax credits and grants. Furthermore, the cost of solar panels has dropped significantly over the past decade. Depending on your location and panel count, it’s possible to become entirely energy independent.

How Much Energy Can A Solar Panel Farm Produce?

Depending on the size of your solar farm, you may be able to produce anywhere from hundreds of thousands or even millions of kilowatt hours. Our team at J-Tech Construction and Solar can help you calculate the number of solar panels you’ll need to accommodate your farming operation and help you get them installed.
